I’m Thinking Tonight Of My Blue Eyes

It would been [G]better for us both had we [C]never,

in this [D]wide and wicked [D7]world had never [G]met,

for the pleasure we both seemed to [C]gather,

I'm [D]sure, love, I'll [D7]never for[G]get.


Oh, I'm [G]thinking tonight of my [C]Blue Eyes,

who is [D]sailing far [D7]over the [G]sea.

Oh, I'm thinking tonight of my [C]Blue Eyes,

and I [D]wonder if he [D7]ever thinks of [G]me.


Oh, you told me once, dear, that you loved me,

you said that we never would part,

but a link in the chain has been broken,

leaving me with a sad and aching heart.    + CHORUS


When the cold, cold grave shall enclose me,

will you come near and shed just one tear?

Will you say to the strangers around you,

a poor heart you have broken lies here?   + CHORUS
